I went over to see Peter Gill in Hammersmith yesterday morning and then met Ben at the Mills for lunch.
I am so used to conversation with Peter being at an exalted level that I was initially confused when he said he had started to watch a documentary about Epstein on Netflix but could't get on with it. I had assumed he was talking about Jacob Epstein the sculptor rather than the notorious Jeffrey Epstein.
Then later over a lager Ben started discoursing about Yukio Mishima, the Japanese author.
I am honoured by this exalted company.
